Love or Bread: Calling All Watchers!



I’ve only been able to watch the first episode and a half, and it seemed pretty slow. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a ISWAK & TKA fan as much as the next girl, but I just couldn’t seem to hang on to the story for the first episode. So, I’m asking you drama watchers: What do you think of Love or Bread?

I’ll be catching up with the series sometime later on during my break (yay!!), so I’d like to get YOUR opinion. 🙂


I Still Can’t Believe It


I still can’t believe that Marky Cielo is dead. I just can’t. I keep thinking that there’s a conspiracy and that he’ll just show up one day healthy and well. Or maybe, he did die, but doctors are still trying to bring him back to life…

I don’t know. I was never a fan of his to begin with and didn’t care if he was in a show or not. However, his death really struck hard with me. Is it because he’s so young and the same age as I am? Yes, probably that’s the reason why.

To his family, friends, fans: my deepest condolences. He didn’t deserve to die; it was too early for him. Maybe that’s why I still don’t believe it.

And since I’m an avid watcher of Lalola, I was tearing up when I saw him with Lovi Poe. He looked so alive.

This past day and a half, Marky has taught me a lesson: go out there and don’t waste time. LIVE.

The Last Week (KIS): Rocky Finally Knows the TRUTH!

The episode immediately (more like after 2 minutes of a summary of what has happened in the story) starts from where it left off last week: Anthony shoots Ronaldo and Garie comes screaming. Rocky appears some time later and Garie tells him that Anthony shot her Tatay.

Fast forward, we are taken into the hospital morgue with Ronaldo lying on the table with Garie weeping. There are numerous flashbacks from the past. Rocky comes and Garie tells him that she trusted him and it was because she loved him. Bewildered at that statement, Rocky says that he loves her too. However, now that her Tatay was murdered, Garie does not want to see him ever again. She tells him to leave.

Outside, Amir and Popong show up and the former gives Rocky a blow to the face. Popong tells him off and with her finger says, “Naiintindihan mo!” Amir then gives Rocky another good ‘ole hit on the face.

In his room, Rocky receives a call from Alona. She then tells him that both of them were wrong about Garie’s Tatay and that Ronaldo may have been telling them the truth after all. She confirms this by stating that it was her mother that confessed that Anthony had been courting Eunice, Garie’s mother.

Now, the pièce de résistance! Rocky sees that he has one voicemail and listens to the message of the year: it is the sound of Ronaldo’s final moments before Anthony kills him. Anthony basically confesses his part in everything; that he killed Rocky’s father, Francisco. And at the very last moment, Ronaldo also confesses that, because of the horrible act he did to Eunice, Anthony is actually Garie’s biological father.

In his rage, Rocky heads off to Anthony’s hotel room and confronts him, gun and all. Tomorrow is the episode to wait for!

My Thoughts

Wowza! This has to be one of the most thrilling episodes in the story. Honestly, I did not stay with this teleserye during most of its duration because there was just too much miscommunication, tears, and sadness every day. However, because it’s the last week, I just had to know what has been happening! Fortunately (and regretfully), I admit that the long summary before each episode greatly helps. 🙂

On Carmen Soo-Rosales (Garie)

Let me first comment on my thoughts of Carmen Soo. This woman is amazing. She’s humble, sweet, classy, and such a fresh face on TV. I sometimes get tired of seeing the same actors being recycled, so Carmen is definitely a new breeze of cool air. In today’s episode, I thought she did exceptionally well, especially in the scene where she was holding her Tatay as he died. I cried right then and there.

On Echo (Rocky)

On the other hand of the loveteam spectrum, we have Jericho. As always, he brings his all on screen. Since I have always made an effort to watch his movie or serye, I basically have his style memorized. When you watch Echo, you know you are going to get it all.

On Luisa Chong (Popong)

Now for Popong! (lol) This lady is awesome. I love how she spoke in Tagalog; it was truly believable. Whoever taught her how to speak those aforesaid words, give yourself a pat on the back.

On Albert Martinez (Ronaldo)

I just did not like how he was breathing while he was acting dead. Either Mr. Martinez should have put in more effort to delay his  breathing or the cameraman should have used other angles to show the hospital morgue scene. His breathing and the long flashbacks were what made me fast foward the episode.


All in all, good episode today, especially the revelations. This episode surely created the platform for what is to come during this week. And I will surely be tuning in!

Much love,



I still can’t believe it. Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao beat LA’s own De La Hoya.

We won guys. Mabuhay ang Pinoy!

Mga Pinoy: A Little Inspiration Before the Pacquiao-De La Hoya Fight

As I sit here in the library of my college, I could not help but remember and Google the upcoming December 6 match between our very own Pacquiao against Oscar De La Hoya. Here’s what I found that really inspired me today:
